no mousedown and no selectionChanged with unlocked fields?

Bonjour Tiemo,

If mouse messages are never sent to an unlocked field (unless the  
control key is down), selectionChanged is always sent at mouseUp:
More, it is sent even if the selection has not been changed when you  
just click.
If you don't get selectionChanged, it's a problem in your stack ;-)
